ECP spurns PTI's unfair treatment allegation, asks SC to dismiss contempt plea

According to Dr. Syed Asif Hussain, Special Secretary of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) did not have a fair chance to run in the elections on February 8. He asked the highest court to “dismiss the contempt petition with a cost” on Sunday.

It said this in response to the PTI’s request that the Supreme Court start contempt of court proceedings against the ECP secretary, the inspector generals of police (IGPs), the chief secretaries of the four provinces, and the secretary of the interior ministry for not following the SC order from December 22, 2023.

The special secretary for the ECP said that the commission met with the PTI team on the Supreme Court’s order and listened to their complaints. He told them that their complaints had been heard and that they could be sure that all groups and candidates would have an equal chance to win.

According to Hussain, the reports had been sent by the electoral body to the Islamabad chief commissioner, all four chief secretaries, provincial election commissioners, and IGs. He also said that the orders were sent to the district returning officers and the returning officers.
